One more game at home before a West Coast trip.

MLB: Toronto Blue Jays at Philadelphia Phillies Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

I’m not sure if you heard the news, but THE PHILLIES ARE IN FIRST PLACE.

FIRST.

PLACE.

PHILLIES.

That makes me so happy. Even if this is the only day we’re in first place for the rest of the season, the Phillies made it there.

But there’s no more time to bask in the glory of yesterday’s win. Baseball is baseball, and that means there’s another game today. So let’s take a look at the lineup.

Most notably, Odubel Herrera is getting a day off. That allows the Phillies to put Aaron Altherr in center and Nick Williams in right. And of course Rhys Hoskins is in left, because he never gets a day off.

Nick Pivetta, first place is in your hands. We’re counting on you.
